Makanan means food, so the name of the restaurant just means Indonesian food and that is exactly what you get. Real Indonesian food.
Despite Bali being Australia's favourite international travel destination, Indonesian food has never really become a big hit in Australia. In Indonesia the food is often simple, but delicious, with influences from India, the Middle East, China, Spain and Portugal even before it became a Dutch colony. The Makanan Indonesia Restaurant in West End serves these delicious flavours in a fun atmosphere.
The restaurant itself is fairly simple but comfortable. The walls are adorned in places with Indonesian paintings and crafts. There is also a handwritten poster with some Indonesian phrases and the restaurant has a reputation as a place to go if you want to practice your Indonesian, though they will of course also provide friendly service in English.

Some Indonesian dishes to try are the various Nasi Goreng (literally fried rice), the delicious vegetarian dish gado-gado, sate kebabs and various types of fried chicken. If you can't decide then try a mixed plate.
If you want real Indonesian food served by friendly staff who are happy to talk to you and make recommendations then Makanan Indonesia is a great option.
